Fake news and social media posts are such a threat to U.S. security that the Defense Department  is launching a project to repel “large-scale, automated disinformation attacks,” as the top Republican in Congress blocks efforts to protect the integrity of elections.

One of the Pentagon’s most secretive agencies, the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), is developing “custom software that can unearth fakes hidden among more than 500,000 stories, photos, video and audio clips.”

As the Title states, "What could go wrong?" As though the government war machine isn't telling the MSM what to tell the people, now they will do it themselves and we are supposed to believe it like we swallowed the fairy tale of 9/11.


We need Tulsi Gabbard more and more to at least slow down this military coup within our soil.

Once people are all on decentralized and/or encrypted networks, it won't be possible for them to "unearth", monitor or control anything.

The government might as well just stop beating around the bush and go ahead and appropriate Facebook, Google and Twitter, and save themselves the trouble of trying to pretend that's not what they're already, if effect, trying to accomplish.

They can own them and control them all to their liking, for all I care, while the entire user community moves on to the next generation of social network services.

I believe that the reason Huawei is considered a threat is because the CIA will not be able to install their code in Huawei phones.

That's certainly one of the prime reasons. The irony is in the fact other phone companies have been known to "cooperate" that way with intelligence. That actually makes many of Huawei's competitors a threat to us.

We're supposed to consider such a company, that refuses to have its product tampered with (in order to render it less secure), as a threat?!

The government and all its intelligence agencies want the ability to know everything we do and say, on demand, at any given moment, while having absolute secrecy for themselves. They're not even trying very hard to hide this anymore.

That's why I keep insisting that general Internet users need to start "going dark", now. They need to dump all the unencrypted and centralized crap that's currently selling them out.
